Swiss Cottage is a classic example of a London Gyratory - numerous lanes that are not fully signal controlled and therefore sees traffic weaving across in a haphazard fashion typical of the Capital's road network.

The Swiss Cottage Tavern
Named after The Swiss Tavern, this junction forms a major connection between the A41 and other local roads. Traffic for the City can split between taking the B525 towards Regents Park or the A41 straight down to Baker Street. To add fun to the mix, the B509 joins from Hampstead at a wide angle giving lots of extra weaving potential. Not content with all this excitement, there are also several bus stops within the junction.

It is perhaps a brave cyclist who attempts this junction - it can be hairy enough in a car!
